Discontinuation of #GiveBR and #GiveAcadiana

Posted By Katelyn Smith, Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations, Monday, October 15, 2018


Dear LANO Membership,

It has been a great privilege to host regional #GivingTuesday events in both the Greater Baton Rouge and Acadiana regions, over the last two years.  Over 150 nonprofits in those regions participated and benefited from the generous donations from their communities.

Unfortunately, the cost of supporting these days (#GiveBR and #GiveAcadiana) with software platforms, advertising and events has outweighed the administrative expense budgeted each year and as a result we have decided to discontinue these programs.

We hope you will participate in other giving days in your region and also register at the national site – https://www.givingtuesday.org/ – to continue the momentum for end of year giving.  We continue to offer fund development resources on our site as well.

We believe the in the power of the sector and the opportunities that unite us – as well as the great things that continue to inspire our collaboration.

Yours in service,



Kelly Pepper
